What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Marilyn Sweater by Gourmet Crochet Link to website or photo www.maggiescrochet.com/marilynn-sweater-pattern-p-664.html What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time. The gourmet pattern runs big. Normally I am a xl-xxl and I wear a large in this even though I followed all measurements and gauges. The purse was a simple bag pattern I made up as I went along after my sister told me she wanted a similar sewn purse. I used my leftovers to make her a crochet version.
